If I’m being honest, I’d have to tell you that my weekdays typically start slow.
I wake up around 7:30 and tend to lay in bed — either listening to music or catching up on the world via the iPhone — for about an hour. I roll out of bed and get myself in some slightly presentable form (though my roommate may think I could spend more time on this) and head towards the kitchen to brew some coffee. I sit down at my desk around 9 (sometimes later, rarely earlier) and begin my work day.
Today I woke up at 4:30! And, yes, I mean 4:30 in the morning.
I was wide awake and smelled the coffee brewing that my dad had made before he headed off to work.
You see, I’m spending the week at the parents’ place in Kentucky and my dad goes to work way, way too early.
Except this morning, I didn’t mind. If we’re still being honest, I got up because I had to pee (TMI? Sorry.)!
But, I didn’t crawl back in to bed, bury my head under the cover, and wait for the sunlight to peek through the window.
I got to work.
Fired up the computer, answered a few emails, and picked up where I left off yesterday.
It. Was. Amazing.
By 9am (the time I’m normally just getting started), I had put in 4 solid hours of work.
Not sure how long this new trend (yes, I’m calling it a trend after one day. I’ve never been a morning person, so let me have my moment) will last, but I finally understand the countless books I’ve read that remind me of the fact that the large majority of successful folks get up early and get going.
I get it.
But old habits die hard, people.
Is it time for an afternoon nap?! 🙂
